Question about HP LaserJet P3005n Printer
I am receiving an error message on the printer stating replace dimm 1 or error mem test failed replace dimm 1.
What I have done twice now is pulled out the board and reseated the 32MB flash firmware smartcard on the board - re-seated the board back into the printer and turned the power back on and it registers the printer again and recognizes the system memory.
This has happened twice in the last 4 weeks. Which the above process has fixed it temporarily. My understanding is that the Q7725-60001 piece that I am re-seating is the 32MB firmware portion of the printer - Would this issue be caused by a faulty or bad firmware chip?
Looking forward to a response and thank you in advance!
An update on my posting of Aug 31 ...
I've installed a SODIMM (HP Part No. QJ7723A, or the Kingston Equivalent), and the printer is working again - the fault message no longer appears, the initialization sequence completes, and the printer becomes ready.
So, not a solution in that I've not worked out why the problem occurs, or how to fix it, but a solution in that for a modest outlay, the printer is back to full operation (and hopefully, able to process more complex pages/jobs, since it now has the maximum complement of memory available).

Not a solution, but the same problem here. Re-seating the board has not solved it. When this error condition exists it seems to be impossible to reach the cold reset or NVRAM initialization options.
HP online support has given up and told me to take the printer to a service centre, which will involve air-freighting it, or taking a long drive and sea crossing.
The DIMM failure message would seem to point to the optional SODIMM socket, not the Flash card with fonts. My 3800 has never had a SODIMM installed but, for some reason, it seems to have decided that it should look for the DIMM. I'm considering trying to buy the appropriate SODIMM and plugging it in to see if that keeps the printer happy.

Try cleaning the contact with a pencil eraser, it could sometimes cause by poor contact
